Sage Hospitality Resources Executive Chef in Denver, Colorado
The Original is a warm, outgoing restaurant in the heart of LoDo at McGregor Square. The OG charms audiences with a combination of playfulness and expertise. We are fun but not silly, imaginative but not unrealistic and knowledgeable but not pretentious. Effortlessly switching between old soul and young-at-heart, the restaurant is friendly, adaptable, and creative.
We don’t just hire order-takers. Our staff are part of the experience, and we work hard to hire people for their uniqueness and personality –they’re the type who will dress up like the Brady Bunch, host a vampire brunch or start a movement for Red Flannel Fridays.
